OUR SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT
We are on a mission to protect more than just your skin – we are doing our part for a cleaner, brighter future.
CLEAN PORES, CLEAN PLANET
We have serious heart for the planet, that’s why we pledge to be transparent when it comes to our sustainability efforts. As we continue to find new ways to reduce our environmental impact, we hope you’ll join us in the work to leave our planet better than we found it. We’re in this together!
Our packaging helps us tackle the impact of plastic head on and we use innovation to reduce or reuse.
formulas safe for the environment
We aim to provide formulas with the lowest possible level of environmental impact and the highest possible level of performance.
respect for resources
We make ongoing efforts in our production process to reduce carbon emissions, water consumption and waste generation.
For us, packaging is about so much more than what’s on the outside. While we take pride in our appearance, we believe that easy-to-use packaging made with our planet in mind matters most. Our goal is to offer innovative packaging that supports a zero-waste lifestyle with our reduce, replace, reuse, and recycle initiatives.
OUR SUSTAINABILITY GOALS
By 2025 we aim to
We’re striving to reduce fossil fuel-based virgin plastic by 30% compared to 2017 and minimize the amount of plastic packaging used via innovative design.
We’re striving to incorporate 50% Post Consumer Recycled Materials in our plastic packaging and use responsibly sourced wood fiber materials.
We innovate with new reuse and refill packaging formats that help our consumers reuse their original packaging many times.
We plan to have all our packaging designed for recycling. By 2023, we will eliminate the use of black plastic.
FORMULAS SAFE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
We’re committed to developing your favorite Bioré products with regard for the environment. We’re striving to formulate all of our products with biodegradable ingredients because we believe that clean care should also do no harm.
RESPECT FOR RESOURCES
Our production is all about doing more and better with less. We strive to be respectful of our resources every step of the way with ongoing efforts to reduce our carbon emissions, water consumption and waste generation. From replacing fossil fuels with green forms of energy to generating our own solar power in the US - we are always looking to reduce our environmental impact and expand our sustainability initiatives.
Our Sustainability Goals
Our US operated factories use 100% renewable energy, and we have a set plan to eliminate our waste to landfills by 2025.
We strive to implement a wastewater treatment technology that recovers and reuses wastewater by 2026.
Energy Reduction Plan
As of 2010 we’ve reduced our yearly energy consumption by 14%, our water consumption by 23% and our wastewater volume by 19%.
Proud to be neutral
Pores aren’t the only things we obsess about–we’re also passionate about our planet. That’s why we’re so proud to announce that our products are now carbon neutral, which is confirmed by the ClimatePartner label. ClimatePartner is an organization that helps us calculate, reduce and offset our carbon footprint. Find out more about our partnership here. Why? Climate change is no longer a future problem–it’s happening now. And it’s one of the greatest global challenges we face. Bioré® skincare believes sustainability is the only path forward. Together with ClimatePartner, we have calculated our carbon footprint and are taking measures to cut our footprint or work to offset all emissions that cannot yet be avoided as we make the products you love. Find out more about our carbon offsets so far here.
Sustainable Forestry Initiative
We are committed to responsibly and sustainably sourcing all of our paperboard to help with forest conservation; therefore, we have partnered with the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). 100% of our cartons and corrugate shippers are sourced from suppliers that maintain SFI or FSC certifications, which means they follow best practices in sustainable forestry standards and contribute to reforestation initiatives. And all the paperboard is recyclable! Click below to learn more about SFI.
